East Pierce Fire and Rescue is seeking up to 12 interested citizens to help shape the future of their community by participating in a Citizens Advisory Committee that will provide feedback and recommendations on planning for facilities, emergency vehicles and other capital equipment needs.

Committee members will represent and communicate with the community in a strategic planning process. The committee will meet to review the current Capital Facilities Plan and comment on the update process; also, the group will look at emergency vehicle replacement plan and needs.

The committee will advise the fire district on validity of seeking funding via a voter-approved bond issue for the purpose of constructing fire stations, replacing emergency vehicles and other capital equipment.

Committee members will act as a communication conduit between the fire district and the community, which may include attending public meetings to support any recommendations of the committee.

The first meeting will be at 7 p.m. Jan. 24, 2018.

If interested, email chief@eastpiercefire.org, or visit www.eastpiercefire.org to download application materials.
